So, we had heard much about the documentary 'ForksOverKnives'. Our buddy Melanie saw it before us and told us how good it was. Then my co-worker Rebecca saw it, and again told me how awesome it was, and that we needed to see it ASAP.
And about two and a half weeks ago we did just that. Wow. Not only was it as great and informative as everyone said. Even though we have been vegan for the last 10 years, it is really easy to slip into bad habits when your busy. You can still eat lots of processed bad for you foods that are vegan.
The research in the doc was nuts. The China Study is pretty hard to argue with. I really want everyone to see it and to make changes to the way they eat. We did. Simple right? Fruit, vegetables, and whole grains.
We still will have treats when we want. It was just our birthday season, and ate lots of naughty things, but we were pumped to get back to eating properly.
Please do yourself and your loved ones a favor, and watch this film. Even changing a bit now and maybe a bit later, it all helps.
